Pie and irrationality

Yesterday, of course was Pi Day. As has become traditional in our house, I picked up a couple pies I had previously ordered from The Happy Eatery Bakery in my town. (If you are ever in Manassas, do not miss this place, it is really superb, totally unsolicited endorsement.) The pies do double duty — … Continue reading Pie and irrationality

The endless war (campaign)

So over the weekend I played with newest leveled alt, my MW/WW monk. I had fun finally running some LFR, the Darkshore Warfront, and some emissary quests with her. I am finding the monk play style both quick and engaging, a far cry from the dull BM hunter mash-the-button-on-cooldown style. If monks had a ranged … Continue reading The endless war (campaign)

Lazy Friday

It’s Friday, and honestly I am feeling quite lazy — possibly getting a head start on spring fever? Thus, I have no great words of wisdom or even foolishness today, just some random observations, links, and stray comments. Feel free to skip the post, I guarantee you there is very little of importance in it. … Continue reading Lazy Friday

So I spent the whole day leveling my Windwalker monk. Actually, I am not a fan … Continue reading Gearing alts

Beastmaster blues

A recent WoW dps chart — always guaranteed to provoke both whining and strutting among the numbers-obsessed — was bad news for BM hunters. Basically, with performances aggregated over time since Battle of Dazar’alor went live, BM hunters are at the bottom of the chart. The bottom. The worst. The spec stinkers of WoW. Worse … Continue reading Beastmaster blues

Rogue thoughts

I spent almost the entire day and a good part of the evening yesterday brushing the dust off my rogue, probably a total of something like 8-9 hours time logged in to the game. I usually don’t play that much in one sitting, tend to be a 2-4 hour kind of player except for major … Continue reading Rogue thoughts

Patch 8.2 bits and pieces

This morning, at a loss for a topic to write on, I listened to a Taliesin/Evitel interview with Jeremy Feasel, the current WoW Patch God. I would say probably don’t waste your time watching the video, as the audio is a bit challenging and honestly the fan fawning of the interviewers is a little hard … Continue reading Patch 8.2 bits and pieces
